About Arka homestay

Guest access

Arka is located at Shyara Land, the 27 acre family estate in Karada village (South Coorg). You have access to the entire estate which includes the coffee plantation, paddy fields and bamboo gardens. The estate also includes a farmhouse with 2 guest rooms and a kitchen and a small settlement for plantation workers. Apart from this, it's pretty much just nature and you.

The neighborhood

They are located in the village of Karada where there are not many homes and almost no tourists. It is a beautiful village with lush green farms and forests. The drive to the property is stunning and they only have a few neighbors. You are bound to feel secluded here.For supplies you might need to head to Kadanga village about 10 mins drive away. There are grocery stores and you can buy some liquor here. The closest town is Virajpet that is 15 kms away.

Other things to note

They offer various facilities to make your stay comfortable and your exploration more enriching. Do keep in mind that this is not a hotel or resort but an offbeat farmstay so service is limited. The place is ideal for someone who can be independent and takes joy in the charms that nature has to offer.

The Space

Arka, a handcrafted bamboo cabin, was inspired by the universal concepts of Sacred Geometry, the geometry of forms inherent in nature. The idea has been to create a space out of harmonious proportions, finely in balance with the tropical surroundings that the home inhabits. The cottage is intriguing and inviting, a blend of modern ideas and some age old wisdom. Arka offers a one of a kind experience - both in terms of the house and also the stunning setting it is placed in. The wood/bamboo house has been painstaking hand crafted, mostly from natural materials from the estate. Special attention has been given to lighting and use of symbols to reflect the home's universal character. Expect simple but delicious home-style food, traditional South Indian and Coorgi food is mostly prepared. Flavorful Coorg coffee can be had through the day :)
